in business model -- i'm going square to the story of computer and storage and say that amazon -- i will pick on brother amazon -- amazon's innovation was not technology. it was not technology. they have to use virtualization technology to enable what they are doing, but their innovation was not virtualization. for the old people in the room, ibm did this in 1972, right? their innovation was 12 cents an hour. 12 cents an hour. and transparently. we could go right now and look it up. you can buy it for 12 cents an hour. that ability to sell you -- and they are not the only ones. other people are starting to do this. so transparent, by the way. but that innovation to give you computer for 12 cents an hour. that is a business innovation. they were economically not possible before. let me give you a simple example. some of you may not know this. a couple of years ago, and they may not want to talk about this, but 350,000 people could not file their taxes on tax day. not very good. you may not know this, but the number one day for ecards on the planet is valentine's day. by a long shot. hallmark p

to maintain a cohesive platform and the result of some people like amazon have made kindle fires out of the thing. they're incompatible with everything else. and in technology they would say this product has forked. it has all these different versions that don't speak to each other. so you can't write one application on android and have it work across the products. that's a problem. well if i were google i wouldn't be trying that. i'd go wait a minute, my world is the world of the web. and there's going to be a next generation web. there's a new technology called haiti million 5, that's the programming language around which the web is built. so if you think what's the web built in, it's built in h.t.m.l.. there hadn't been a new one for 12 years. if you were google and you dominated the old one i would have thought the logical strategy was to try to obsolete apps by giving people something to -- where the -- gave the publisher total control. but google isn't doing that. and because of that -- >> rose: does larry page see applications, apps, as his competition? >> i don't know how the
the older web plays like amazon, newer ones like linkedin, which are not constrained by traditional metrics. much more expensive than every other stock out there in the universe. some regard them as accidents waiting to happen. others say i don't care how they're priced. amazon and linkedin are winners, they can be dominant players in the retail world. plenty of ways to make money. so these bulls suspend price to earnings multiples and just say these stocks, thanks to their incredible momentum have become exceptions to the traditional rules of valuation. you saw that with netflix, 13 cent gain instead of loss, propelled the stock up more than a third after the bell. even though netflix is ridiculously expensive on price to earnings multiple basis. and then there's apple. which reported what many considered a disappointing quarter after the close. company delivering a 33 cent earnings beat off $13.48 basis, revenues came in slightly light. as a result, the stock got pulverized after hours. it made $13 a share, netflix, linkedin and amazon. barely making anything. one goes up more than a thir

on ebook pricing and many developments which we'll cover later on in the program. amazon expanding its publishing operations. the google settlement also moving forward in different directions. those alone accounted for substantial portion of book publishing news. on the nonfiction front i would have to say it was a very strong year. in particular we're seeing a lot of best of 2012 lists dominated by the likes of catherine booz, behind the beautiful forevers. winner of the national book award. robert caro latest volume in his ongoing biography of lyndon johnson. andrew solomon, far from the tree. it was only recently published. a 900 page compendium looking at different child rearing examples of special needs children. those three books alone loan are meaty substantial and but those are tip of iceberg. >> host: bob, same question. >> guest: sticking a little bit with what sara said it was a big year for dead presidents. she mentioned robert caro, fourth probably will be five volumes on lyndon johnson which is incredible act of both reporting and writing about a seminal figure in 20th ce

vendors, so you could do it across amazon and various other people say you could get geographic diversity and so on. people doing this extremely well, for example, would be netflix. many of you in this room i'm sure use the netflix. what they did is dynamically throw what is this is as more and more people click on movies that they want to watch. so then what they are doing is as the need scales, they then have the ability -- they pay them, and, of course, it drops off as soon as the need drops off as well. so they end up essentially paying for average demand. the technology is widely deployed around the world. >> as kind of a follow-up, individuals often use cloud services for backing up their computers. are we about to see people using their computers to back up their clout services to guarantee that they hold on to their data? >> you are at the tip of a very interesting iceberg. go 100,000 miles in space and look down at the earth. we are still driving more wavelength down. there is no problem distributing content out to users. what we have a fundamental problem with is distribution of
